there is good news. police searching for two women who say are targeting folks and stealing wallets. a naked statue of trump in the castro. the story behind it. good afternoon. i am cristina rendon in for gasia mikaelian. >> i am mike mibach. firefighters may finally be starting to catch a break. ted rowlands is near the fire lines. he joins us live. what is the latest, ted? >> reporter: well, this is the biggest concern, this area here, because there is some fire activity in the hills. look at this hillside here. this is completely charred out, but last night it was engulfed in flames, and take a look at where the homes are in relation to that hillside. they are right here. last night it was quite a firefight. firefighters were able to save
these homes and then mother nature really came in and did most of the work because the wind shifted and pushed the fire back onto itself. it was really the game changer, if you will, because these homes were absolutely in peril until that wind shifted and pushed the flames back onto themselves. wrightwood a population of 5,000 people. this is the only population area right now that is in major danger of this fire. about half of the people left. the other half decided they didn't want to want to leave. a couple folks said we are going to wait it out. >> yeah, we are just gonna stick it out and hopefully everything stays the same and mellows out. >> reporter: you're packed? >> yes. >> reporter: what do you have? >> clothes. photos. things that are expensive. >> reporter: so the biggest concern is actually just over this hillside.
there is fire activity there. we drove into that hillside earlier this morning. it's about probably a mile away from here and there is significant fire activity. if the wind shifts back or picks up in intensity, that could be a problem. for now, things look good. talking to firefighters, they are crossing their fingers this weather will stay with them for the next several hours to give them the upper hand in this still uncontained fire. >> last night you were just really in the thick of it. i am curious. just the attitude, the emotions of the firefighters from just 14 hours ago to this afternoon, do you get a sense that they are, indeed, from their perspective, getting a good grip on this finally, getting the upper hand? >> reporter: yeah. you can tell the anxiety level is at a different level. last night it was active. the firefight was active. there were flames everywhere. now it's a different scenario. they are here. they are obviously watching everything and they have fire
trucks in driveways in the area. but they are just monitoring and monitoring specifically the weather. if things change, they will jump into action. at this time they are really standing guard in case they are needed. at least in this area. >> a great job protecting these structures last night where you are. ted rowlands live in san bernardino county. thank you. want to bring in our meteorologist, mark tamayo. we heard ted talk about the break in the weather for those firefighters? >> yeah, that was a nice development. it's interesting. we have the overall weather pattern. you have weather stations around the area to describe the overall conditions. but the fire itself is so chaotic, it can generate its own micro scale weather pattern. that's the hard part to model. >> we saw a tornado of flames. >> yeah, that popped up yesterday. a lot of that could be a factor. not only the weather, but on the extreme fire behavior as well. we have red flag warnings posted for southern california for the fire zone of the blue
cut fire. temperatures still very hot and also very dry out there, and also you are hearing a lot about the terrain and also just where some of these towns are. there is wrightwood in the upper left portion of your screen. right now temperatures broke out a couple sensors here. lower elevations 90 degrees. relative humidity at 5%. up in wrightwood temperatures in the upper 70s. moisture around 17%. the key concern today will be increase in the wind speeds for the higher elevations. winds could top 25 miles per hour, increasing through the afternoon hours. you see the temperature spread from the mid 80s to the higher elevations, close to 100 degrees closer to the lower elevations. we are not talking about any fog to help things. we are still talking about a bit of a breeze and hot temperatures. still it was a nice improvement, but still it's going to be a challenge. >> take advantage of that break with the air attack and pound
it until those winds give up. >> yeah. you hear about the local fire crews being sent out. what i'm told is at times they are told to go to a residence to camp out. >> all right. mark, we will check in in a little bit. in lake county, fire officials have increased the number of homes destroyed to 200 single family homes. ten other multi-family homes, 13 businesses are destroyed. the fire that spread across 4,000 acres is 55% contained. today crews are expected to continue mopping up and securing the fire perimeter. last night more residents were allowed back into the burned area, but still there are some road closures. crews nope have the fire -- hope to have the fire contained by sunday. >> the man accused of starting that fire is in jail. damin pashilk made an appearance yesterday. he fainted before entering the
courtroom and needed water before appearing before the judge. he kept his face down, turned away from the news camera. he is accused of starting the clayton fire as well as 11 other fires since july of last year. >> if i knew what the motivation would be, i would be a psychologist making millions of dollars writing books. >> pashilk did not say much during the brief court hearing but nodded his head and gave a soft yes when asked if he understood the charges against him. he lost his home to a fire in 2013. the motive of that clayton fire is a mystery at this hour. he is scheduled to return to court in three weeks. the search is on for two women expected of stealing wallets of patrons in walnut creek. >> police are looking at new surveillance video in helping their investigation. ktvu's alex savidge is live now in that city with the details. alex. >> reporter: hey, good afternoon to you guys.
yeah. surveillance video shows two women lifting wallets from unsuspecting customers at three different restaurants in downtown walnut creek over the past couple of weeks. we will show you this video here. you can see these two women seated together at a table. watch as one of them reaches hyped her and grabs the wallet -- behind her and grabs the wallet out of another customers' pictures. police believe they are responsible for three wallet thefts between july 27 and august 5. investigators say the women immediately started using the stolen credit cards from those wallets at nearby businesses in this area, and also at the sun valley mall in concord. we talked to a woman in downtown walnut creek this morning. she told us seeing this surveillance video is part of the reason why she keeps her purse very close to her. >> it's relatively that way. and now when we hear this
story, you know, like you don't feel safe any more, right? when you go to a restaurant, you need to -- >> hold your purse? >> yeah. one idea like this here or in the restaurant it's like this. >> reporter: and police say one of those two women acts as a lookout during these crimes while the other snatches the wallets from those customers. here are some still photos here of the two women police are trying to identify and, obviously, trying to take into custody. if you recognize either of the two women seen on that surveillance video you should put in a call to the walnut creek police department. >> all right. thank you very much. a middle school teacher accused of having a relationship with a teenager. police in san bruno say they found butts inside a car with a
